No Bake Brownies

Brownies are thought to be of US origin, the name derived from their color (brown) and from the mythical pixie-like characters common in children's stories from the same time period. One story suggests that brownies were invented at the Palmer House in Chicago in 1892.


2       - cups (12-ounce) semisweet chocolate morsels
1       - (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
3       - cups vanilla wafer crumbs
2       - cups miniature marshmallows
1       - cup chopped pecans
1       - cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2    - teaspoon salt


Step 1
- Combine chocolate morsels and 1 cup evaporated milk in a heavy saucepan, cook over low heat until morsels melt, stirring occasionally. Set chocolate mixture aside.

Step 2
- Combine wafer crumbs and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl, stir until blended. Set 1/2 cup chocolate mixture aside. Stir remaining chocolate mixture into crumb mixture. press into a well-greased 9-inch square pan.

Step 3
- Combine reserved 1/2 cup chocolate mixture and 2 teaspoons evaporated milk, spread over crumb mixture. (reserve remaining evaporated milk for another use.) Chill. Cut into squares.
Yield: 3 dozen
